'TTURDCG- November there are two
I 1 eclipses, one of the sun, and one
- of the moon; the lirst cannot be
een anjTrhere In the United Statos,
T-liile the second will be fairly well
visible. On the second day of the
month an uninteresting partial ecllose
of the sun occurs in the North Pacific
ocean. A half month later, on thj 5Gth,
a total eollpse of the moon takes place,
ivhich -will be visible in all its phases
to the residents aloong the eastern
coast of United States and Canada. For
localities half way across the conti
nent, part of the eclipse will happen
'before sunset, while the sun is still
above the "horizon and the moon below
it, and consequently invisible. On the
Pacific slope, the eclipse will end about
the time of moonrise.
At the time of an eclipse we realize
that the earth and moon both cast
shadows. Ordinarily we are not aware
The World Of Restless Women
IN IT THE REST CURE IS NOW A NECESSITY
By Mrs. Humphrey (Madge)
In a modern comedy that has en
joyed a successful run the -characters
are constantly ringing- each other up, to
ask: "What are you going- to do this
evening?" Thej' are the "Drldge-playing,
race-going, restaurant-caning set, and
the idea of spending a quiet evening
at home never occurs to them. Their
1s no exaggeration about this. The
author, of the play reflects life as it is
among the great majority of the well-to-do,
all restlessness and rush. There
Is no peace or quiet in their lives.
Home to them is humdrum, dull, un
interesting. It is a place in which to
breakfast, to dress and to sleep.
Everyone is too restless to stay there.
Forever whirling after some fresh
amusement, they lead a teetotum life
and after a few years of it they can
not stop even when deadly tired of the
incessant round of what once was
pleasure, but is now merely its
A decade since the "rest cure" was
almost unknown. Now it seems one
of the necessities of life. The need
of it Is caused by the universal rest
lessness, a malady that was once re
garded as a particular attribute of
Youth is naturally restless, but
women of every age seem now to be
unable to be quiet. King Solomon
.said: "Her strength is toi sit stilL"
Her weakness, then, lies in being In
capable of repose. The Autocrat of
the Breakfast Table wrote, "Vulgar
persons cannot sit still," and he adds:
"Stillness of person and steadiness of
.feature are single marks of good
breeding." But only a few show anj
eucii marits. v
In illness the plight of those who
have a habit of restlessness is pitiable.
Excitement is forbidden, and quiet
pleasures have never been appreciated.
Jangled nerves result in an irritability
that makes the patient trying to her
nurses and a misery to herself. The
habit of self control, one of the most
valuable of life's .lessons, has not been
acquired, and its absence prolongs ill
ness by retarding recovery.
Quietness Oat of Date.
Quietness is out of date. A low
voice is not often heard. "Women and
girls shout what they have to say.
The laugh, too, is often loud and
strident. It all comes of the excitabil
ity that rages among us, the feverish
anxiety to be hunting after amuse
ment. Such quiet occupations as
reading, singing, playing are regarded
as dull and uninviting.
Books are no longer read. They are
skimmed, if looked at at alL News
papers and magazines are treated in
the same way. There seems to be no
sense of leisure. The days are a head
long race after distraction. The pros
pect of an evening spent alone is ab
solutely appalling to a woman of this
TelepJitme Aids Restlessness.
The telephone is perhaps an aid to
restlessness, as well as the motorcar.
The influence of both is in the direc
tion of what the Americans call
"hustle." Small wonder that nervous
ailments are increasing, and that
maladies of the heart are becoming
more frequent with every year that
passes. Excitement must tell in
juriously upon the nervous system, and
constant movement may agitate the
heart. There was once a time "when
Sunday was a day of rest, but the

tbat a shadow exists -until it falls on
something:. "When the moon passes into
the shadow cast by the earth, we have
an eclipse of the moon, which Is total
or partial, depending: on whether the
moon is wholly immersed or not. "When
the earth passes Into the shadow of the
moon, there Is an eclipse of the sun.

trouble to look, he could see the shad

How many of us have looked to
wardsthe east while the sun is setting-,
to see what was happening- there? TVe
are- all of us very familiar with the
sunset colors and the glory of the de

The human teetotums twirl fever
ishly in towns and cities during four
or five days out of the seven, and then
fly off to hotels or country cottages
for the other two or three. Vitality
is wasted in all this" useless exertion,
and discontent comes of feeling ex
hausted without any accruing benefit
or profit. Serenity vanishes in the
hubbub. Breakdown follows and then
comes the doctor and the "rest cure,"
often undertaken too late.
An Infections Quality.
Can one of the reasons of this rest
lessness in women be owing to their
having entered so much into com
radship with men in their amusement
and their occupations? Few things are
more Infectious than this quality. See
ing other people perpetually on the
move, like a swarm of gnats on a
summer evening, makes others un
settled. But restlessness is an In
tegral part of man. Nature gave it
him as part of equipment for doing the
pioneering, the exploring, the discover
ing of the world.
It is restlessness that makes the ad
venturer, in the true and worthy sense
of that perverted word. It was re'
lessness that sent Columbus across the
seas to find the. great continent of
which he had dreamed. The world
could not get on without this Inherent
restlessness of man.
"Women have not always realized
that it is part of the masculine charac
ter. Many wives and mothers have
made the mistake of supposing it to be
eradicable, of thinking It something
amiss, faulty, that needs setting to
rights. They have tried various meth
ods. Some try coaxing, some coercion.
By falling to understand that rest
lessness is proper to the male, many
thousand -women have missed married
happiness, and millions of mothers
have made home a place of discomfort
for their boys.
Better Home-Keepers Once.
In the days before society became
the huge agglomeration of. mixed
classes it now is, there was less in
citement for girls and women to be
perpetuallj' in evidence. They were
not only more at home, but were bet
ter home-keepers. Restless women
canot give time and attention to do
mesticity. They must dress and be in
the public ej'e; seeing and being seen.
Any pretext is seized upon for this
Though thousands of earnest women
have become suffragists through" con
viction, whether mistaken or other
wise, of the excellence of the cause,
restlessness has swelled their- ranks
with many thousands more. Numeri
cally, any party they join becomes su
perior, but it is doubtful if they make
it intrinsically stronger. On the con
trary, the restless element is usually
a source of weakness in any com
munity. Could but this tremendous mass of
energy be directed to sWie worthy
aim, the -world would be Immeasurably
richer. Fortunately, there are many
undertakings in which the abilities of
women of leisure can "be utilized, and
some of these promise well for the
benefit of 'the state.
The day will come, though not just
yet, v.dien women will be associates,
with men, not only in their sports and
amusements, but In the real work of
the world, and all this commotion of
vague restlessness will have settled
down to a force as powerful as that
which directs the turbulence of the
tides of that great emblem of restless
ness the sea.
teresting. The earth must cast a shad
ow, and if this shadow falls on any
solid bodies, we will become aware of
It? How. then, about the solid par
ticles In our atmosphere, the dust
specks? "We can see these when a ray
of sunlight shines across a darkened
room. The dust is carried many miles,
up into the atmosphere, and the beam
of the electric searchlight across the
night s-kj- makes it plainly visible.
The dust is generally least after a
heavy rain. If it were not for the
dust and water vapor in the atmos
phere, darkness would settle down on
the earth verjr quickly after sunset,
twilight would be very short. Twilight
is caused by the refledtion of the sun's
light from the colid particles of our
atmosphere, and Is ordinarily supposed
to be lost until the sun has sunk 18
degrees below the horizon. And If
the sunset colors and twilight arc make
the dust In the.atmosphere visible, why
cannot we see the earth's shadow? "We
can see it. If we only try and observe
t it. On a clear evening shortly after
sunset one can see the colors of gold
and pink also in the east. As the min
utes pass, these colors gradually fade
and are pushed up from the horizon
by a bluish gray darkness. If one has
a good view of the eastern horizon, he
will see this grayish color gradually
rising up from the horizon in the form
of an arc of a circle. As the time
goes by, this arc mounts higher and
higher. The highest point of this arc
is exactly opposite the point where the
sun sets. This is the shadow of the
earth on the sky which appears as
the shadow bow. By Imperceptible de
grees, as the twilight lights fade away.
the shadow bow rises higher, the golds
and pinks above become less pro
nounced, the shadow bow fades into
the darkening sgy, and night comes
on. , Thus can we realize that the
earth casts a shadow.
As everj-one knows, the earth moves
In her orbit about the sun in the
ecliptic (so called because eclipses oc
cur only when the moon is near it.)
If the moon moved in her orbit also
in the ecliptic, there would be two
eclipses each and every month. At
the time of new moon, our satelite
would come between us and the sun,
and there would result an eclipse of
the sun. A fortnight later, the moon
would pass into the shadow cast by the
earth and a lunar eclipse would take
place. But the moon's orbit is not in
the ecliptic, but is inclined to it by a
small angle, a little more than five
degrees. To have an eclipse of the
moon our satelite must pass Into the
earth's shadow, or In other words, the
moon and sun must be on opposite
sides of the earth, the moon rising
at sunset and the moon full. Since the
earth and sun are in the plane of the
ecliptic the earth's shadow Is like
wise In'this plane, and an eclipse of the
moon can occur only when the moon Is
near the ecliptic or expressed in tech
nical terms near her node. If the
full moon, she will pass through the
center of the earth's shadow, and a
centre of the earth's shadow, and a
long total eclipse will result The far
ther the moon is from the ecliptic at
the time of full moon, the shorter will
be the duration of totality. Evidently
lt is easy to calculate at what dis
tance it is possible for the moon to be
from the node of her orbit and still
have an eclipse take place. Since the
motion of the moon , is well known to
the astronomer, it is possible for him
to calculate "many years in advance the
time of which an eclipse of the sun
or moon will take place. In a re
markable German book by Oppolzer,
there is given the elements of all the
eclipses which occur for the next 250
years, and bj- a glance at a map one
can tell where to travel In order to
see any eclipse of the sun during that
interval. Not only can the astrono
mer by his calculations see into the
future in such a remarkable way, but
he can look back into the dim and
misty past, and this same both tells
when and where all eclipses have ta
ken place during the past 30 centuries,
to the date 1207 B. C.
The accuracy of astronomic predic
tion in the case of Halley's comet
caused all to wonder at the exactness
of the grand old science of astronomv.
but ecliDses can be foretold with a
precision far greater.
Moon Overtakes Enrth.
Since the moon moves in her oibit
in an easterly direction, it overtakes
the shadow of the earth and a darken
ing appears first on the eastern edge
of the moon. The appearance of the
moon as if crosses' throough the shad-
